DATE, 



The captioned confidential informant is presently- 
testifying before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. 
In a release to the press, the HCUA indicated 'that Cvetic had 
stated that on November 11, 194,7, he personally met with Henry 
Wallace and C*. B#- Baldwin in a hotel room in Pittsburgh* The 
Director asked whether Cvetic had* given this information to the 
Bureau. 

The Director further asked how long Cvetic had been 
furnishing information to the Bureau, either as a paid informant 
or prior to the time we started paying him* 

Inasmuch as the answer to either of the questions asked 
by the Director were not readily available in the Bureau 1 . s files 
I called SAC Thornton of the Uttsburgh Office at 3*05 Fdfr, ' * * 
February 23, 1950, and asked him to furnish the Bureau with* the 
requested information by teletype* 

Mr* Thornton stated this would be done,

Superviser John £* Foley, on February 24, 1950, to ask whether the Bureau 
had any objection to his service interviewing the ahove individual with 
a view toward utilizing" his services as an escpert witness* Mr« Duggan 
pointed out that his service is very much in need of expert witnesses in* 
deportation: proceedings and inasmuch as this individual apparently suits 
the needs of MS in that field, he asked if the Bureau had any objection 
to so utilizing him, Mr, Duggan pointed out that Ovetic has "been a memher 
of the Communist Party for approximately seven years and was used in an 
under cover capacity hy the,*Bureau* He has appeared "before the House 
Committee on Un-American Activities recently* Mr* Duggan desired an 
expeditious reply in view of ' the fact that he, or some other representative 
of his service, desires to interview Cvetic immediately "before his return 
to his home * '

Kie following is a summary of the testimony of MATE 




voefore the House Committee on Un-American Activities on February 23, 1950. 

, CVETIC in response to answer to relate his relation and association 

1 with STEVE KELSON stated that he worked in close relation with STEVE||E:LS0N 
and was in contact almost daily with NELSON for a period of one and one half 
years vshen they met to discuss policy for the American Slav Congress and 
other Communist Party activities. STEVE NELSON during this period was active" 
in the capacity of District Organizer of the Communist Party in Western 
Pennsylvania. STEVE NELSON received his instructions as to the proper party 
line at meetings of the National Board of the Communist Party in New York, 
and STEVE. NELSON in turn would pass^this, on to his subordinates at district 
meetings; his subordinates such as BILL^LBEETSON and ANDl^NDA of the 
steel activities. 

CVETIC was asked if STEVE NELSON ever made mention of the atom "bomb 
secrets. CVETIC replied that the only mention STEVE NELSON ever made of the 
atom "bomb was subseauent to the announcement "by President TRUMAN that Russia 
now had the atom homo. CVETIC quoted STEVE: NELSON as saying "We have the 
atomic "bomb and the enemy won't "be in such a g— d — hurry to start war now." 
CVETIC explained that "the enemy as used in the context of STEVE NELSON' s 
remarks referred to the United States. 




CVETIC was asked to describe the educational- setup within the 
Communist Party. He related his own indoctrination within the party. CVETIC 
who joined the Communist Party in Fehruary of 1943 was first S^otrinated^ 
through the study of hooks on Communism "by EARL BROWSER, and the EARL BROWDER 
line of study was taught up until the 19^5 National Convention., EARL BROWDER' s 
philosophy was that capitalism and socialism could work side "by side over a 
period of time, and that ultimately socialism would win outi hut there would 
he no cause for force or vixLence. At the 19-45 Convention, a new line was 
adopted. This new line was the result of JACQUE&JISJCLOUS' report issued from 
Prance criticizing the Communist Party, USA, for the party line used at that 
time regarding the peaceful transition of capitalism and socialism functioning 
together into ultimate socialism. This philosophy was thrown out at the 
convention and replaced hy the Marxist, Lenin and Stalin teachings of overthrow 
of the government hy force "or violence and the estahlishment of a dictatorship; 
of the Proletariat. CVETIC stated that EARL 3R0WDER was ousted from the ^ 
Communist Party at this time, and it was his opinion that the expulsion of 
BROWDER was "because of the conflict in his philosophy and that of Marxist, 
Lenin and Stalin. After the new party line was adopted. thojswJM ^°^ i0 
conform were expelled from the Communist Party. . /&&—>& / & 7T&/~Z

AIR MAIL SPECIAL DELIVERY 

REGISTERED MAIL 




Rebulet 3/1/5O and Pittsburgh, teletypes to Bureau, d/k/50 and 3/10/50* 

There is transmitted herewith the original, five thin^arhites and a 
yellow* of a blind memorandum capti one&- t l51ggti3-aQny i „ o£^ ( MattheyA^.etlc^leilor^e^The^ 
House CjDmmttee^on nn-Ame^canAci^vities, in Vteg^Z^t^D^JL, F £&S£§£5jJ^ 

It should be noted that the Bureau's suggested headings for this 
^ memorandum have been followed as far as possible ♦ However, in many instances, 
the nature of CTETIC f s testimony is such that statements which might logically 
fit into all three suggested headings are included in one or two paragraphs 
of *&e testimony. In those instances in which it migjrb fit more than one 
suggested heading, it has been placed beneath the heading which appears most 
logical, appropriate comments being made with regard to other portions of the 
testimony which could possibly be included in one of the other suggested headings* 

* 

It is noted that CTETIC and his interrogator used such terms as nationality 
Commission of the Communist Party, TJ.S.A* and Nationality Commission of the Communist 
Party of Western Pennsylvania rather loosely, creating confusion as to which Com- 
mission was actually meant; also that much of CTETIC *s testimony on February 23, 
I95Q9 (pages 151-187), is composed of his opinions, beliefs, and conclusions re- 
garding the Communist Party, its methods and policies* It is also noted that the 
dates, identification, and agenda of many of the meetings referred to by CTETIC, 
as well as statements reportedly made at same, are often vague and when compared * 
with his reports, have on many occasions been found to be in error* 

* This office has been unable, in many instances, to check the accuracy 
of CTETIC *s testimoroy regarding Communist Party activity among foreign language 
groups, since CTETIC. was the only informant of this office -who regularly reported 
concerning such activity* 

' ?*</ When considered in, its entirety and on a broad basis, CTETIC's testimony 

}fj§:& L fairly accurate, 'but when specifically compared with reports submitted by him, 
<&y&f*&\^ s been found to contain minor £nd major errors. J

^advise that an analysis and review of Cvetic *s testimony 
before the House Un-American Activities Committee on February 21-23., 19 50 
by the ^tt ^urg h^Qffice revealed that CveMcJhad furnished Pittsburg h 
] substantially al l ^ Camrnfoteaj 

• Cvetic ! s testimony before the Committee was practically the same as. the 
information .he furnished Pittsburgh; and his testimony was generally accurate 
in light of information available to Pittsburgh from other sources on such 
matters ♦ 

BACKGSOUHD 

A photostatic copy of Cvetic's testimony was furnished to Pittsburgh 
for, review and analysis to determine the above facts • 

DETAILS 

Pittsburgh by memorandum dated March 13, 1950 submitted the results 
of their review and analysis of ^Cvetic 's testimony* Pittsburgh set forth 
specifically each item of Cvetic^s testimony which had not previously been 
furnished by horn to Pittsburgh, and listed those items in 'Cvetic's testimony 
.which appeared to be in variance with information previously furnished by , him 
: ;or contrary to information concerning such items received from other available 
Reliable sources. The memorandum -JErcm Pittsburgh is attached * 

\" In substance, Pittsburgh's analysis revealed that Cvetic had previously 

(furnished to Pittsburgh substantially all of the information he testified to 
before the Committee j his testimony was practically the same as the information, 
he furnished Pittsburgh} and his testimony was generally accurate in light of 
informatfion available to Pittsburgh from other reliable sources on such matters* 

X\u\i T &s majority of the information that Cvetic testified to before the 

f Committee which Pittsburgh wa§/unabie to determine had previously been furnished 
by him might generally be characterized as the result, of Cvetic's attempt to 
overemphasise' his importance and dramatize his testimony* Also,/the fact that 
Cvetic f testiii^d" from recollection of many incidents happening seven or eight 
years ago necessarily accounts for some of the minor* inaccurapies- in his testimony.

One particular incident in Cvetic f s testimony, however, should 
be noted* Cvetic -was asked by the Committee if there had been any occasion 
when he rats requested to obtain information from Government agency sources 
for use by the Communist Party. Cvetic answered that he could recollect 
at least one occasion -when Eoy Hudson, who "was then District Organiser 
for the Communist Party in Pittsburgh, asked him to secure from the files 
of the United States Snployment Service information relative to the number 
of employees working in industry in Western Pennsylvania, Cvetic testified 
that he contacted the FBI office in Pittsburgh and told of the request from 
Hudson. Upon being advised by the FBI to go ahead and see what information 
could be obtained, Cvetic got information from the United States Employment 
Service's files. Thereafter r he checked with the FBI Agent with whom he 
wag working and some of the figures were manipulated, before being turned over 
to Hudson. Cvetic told the Committee that he filed a report on the incident 
with the FBI b and cleared with the FBI before giving the. information to Hudson., 
This actiy3.ty*was said to have takega. place during the latter part of 1945 
pr the first- part of 1946. Pittsburgh could locate no report from Cvetic 
or any other record of this incident. Cvetic *s verbatim testimony in this 
regard is set * forth under Item 31, ccmmencing,.on page lA r of the attached 
memorandum frcm Pittsburgh. 

A photostatic copy of Cvetic f s entire testimony is being retained 
in the Bureau*s files.

"Mr. TA7MHER. Can you give us some idea of the financial assis- . 
tance the labor Press Committee gave the Daily Worker or Sunday 
Worker through the activity of that Committee? 

"Mr. CTOTIC. Yes. We were instrumental several times in raising 
$8,000 or $10,000 in Western Pennsylvania for the Daily and Sunday 
Worker through raffles and picnics and so forth. We set up this 
Committee in the Communist Party office, with Communist Party 
members as members of the Committee* 

"Mr. EAVMER. Ihis $8,000 or $10,000 you raised was raised over 
what period of time? 

"Mr, GVETIC. A one-year period. One year we raised around $8,000 
or $10,000. Another year we raised around $7,000. Last year we 
raised $3,000 or $4,000. I would say in about five years we raised 
hetween $25,000 and. $30,000 through this Committee." 

No report submitted hy CVEIIC can he located in which he specifically 
reported this information. According to a report submitted on 
August 29, 1949, OVEDIC advised that the picnic held in 1949 was known 
as the "All Nations Picnic, 1 " rather than as a picnic held under the 
auspices of the "lahor Press Committee.? 

With, regard to moneys raised hy the Labor Press Committee, CYETIC 
furnished a mimeographed sheet on September 27, 1948 which .reflected

1 they will never beat down the Soviet Union and so on so they might 
as well forget about it.*

and in many instances is taken verbatim from Pittsburgh letter to the 
Bureau* 6/27/47 , in the case entitled "YUGOSLAV HJTELLI&MCJBACIIYITIES, 
INTERNAL SECURITY - R.» Although said Pittsburgh letter described 
the proceedings of the June 21, 1947 meeting as reported "by GYETIC,

not the same as set out in CVETIC % s report*

drafted by GEORGE WUCHINICH. " 

She above statement cannot he located in the Pittsburgh files and 
* no report of CVETIC mentioning same or its *draf ting can he located. 

However, on June 27., 1949, CVETIC furnished a carbon copy of a news 
release issued under date of June 26* 1949 by "M&DTHEw CVETIC,

wholeheartedly repudiated and denounced the subversive charge leveled 
at it by the House Un-American Committee, based on its 150 paged 
trumped up report. 

-"In issuing the statement, Mr. CVETIC pointed to the record of 
the American Slav Congress during the war and to ( its patriotic 
program today — of fighting for world peace, jobs, housing and civil 
and political rights for all the people. 

"Mr. CTOTIC said further that if there are any subversive elements 
in this country, it is those planners of World w ar III who %re hiding 
their war aims behind a smoke screen, of framed up trials, tramped up,

investigations and fake charges against all those who are fighting 
to keep decency and democracy alive in America. 

"And condemning the House Un-American Committee for attempting to 
perpetrate this deception on the American people, Mr. CVEEIC called 
on those Congressmen who are wasting the people's money carrying 
on these trumped up investigations to get down to "business and 
legislate the housing, civil rights, EEPC and lahor program which 
they were promising when they ran for office in 1948." 

"As for the American Slav Congress, said Mr. CVETIC, it will keep 
up the fight until the goal of world peace, freedom, equality and 
abundance is secured to all the people." 

According to a typed notation appearing on the above carbon copy 

of said statement, it was "written by M. CVEDIC, Executive Secretary, 

after talk with STE7E NELSON who suggested same."

him the National Council of Americans of Croatian Descent had changed 
its name to "Union of American Croats" (Union of American Croatians); 
that this change had "been made "because the National Council had "been 
cited "by the Attorney General as "being a subversive organization. It 
is noted that other sources have advised that this organization is no 
longer known as the National Council of Americans of Croatian Descent*

of the 66 deportees, 65 are members of the Communist -Party, one a 
member of the CPA. The 67th one, JOE WEBER, is a member of the 
Communist Party." 

In the above report, CTOTIC did not mention a person whom the

"Mr. CTOTIC. Recently we have set up an American Yugoslav Defense 
Committee. * Ihisi is a subcommittee of the American Committee for 
Protection of foreign Bom. I was made chairman of this new com- 
mittee, MARY BORICH was -made secretary, and MAETE SUSUJAE was made 
treasurer." 

By report dated December 10, 1949 GVETIC advised the official name 
of the above organization was adopted at a meeting held on that 
date as "American Yugoslav Committee for the Protection' of the * 
Foreign Born." 

24. Re testimony: Page 84, Paragraph 8„

Pittsburgh." 

By report dated January 4, 1950, CYETIC advised that the American 
Yugoslav Committee for the Protection of the foreign Born had received 
approximately $318; that expenditures had reduced this amount to

"Mr. IAVMEEU What is the approximate membership of the Communist 
Party in Western Pennsylvania, if you know? 

"Mr, CVETIC. Yes, I know. At the last report given hy the district 
• secretary of the Communist Party in Western Pennsylvania, his figure — 
and -these are his figures— were approximately 550 members." 

CVETIC advised in a report dated April 30, 1949 that BILL ALBEKD30N 
had stated at a district committee meeting that as of that daije there 
were 562 registered members of the Communist Party of Western Pennsyl- 
vania.. 

An anonymqus source advised on February 5, 1950 that as of January 13, 
1950 there were 464 registered members in the Communist Party of 
Western Pennsylvania* 

26. Ee testimony: Page 99, Paragraphs 9-10. 

. "Mr # O&VEMER. You sta ted you turned your records over to the ^1? 
"Mr. CVEOIC. Yes." 

In the event CVETIC is referring to his own membership cards for 
1947 and 1948 his statement is correct since these cards are on 
file in this office. In the event he is referring to Communist Party 
records of the Lawrenceville Club, he has reported that he did not have 
access to such records and that same were kept by LOUIS PILEEICH, 
Lawrenceville Club secretary. 

27. Ee testimony:. Page 102, Paragraph 5., 

CVETIC stated: "...I mentioned "before that at every functionary 
or district committee meeting in 1948 the Progressive Party was 
discussed. .." 

Although CVETIC has reported that the Progressive Party was discussed 
at many Communist Party meetings in 1948, his reports do not indicate 
that it was discussed at every such meeting. His testimony in this 
regard is exaggerated since CVEDIC did not attend all functionary 
and district committee meetings in 1948»

OTETIC did not set this information out in his report dated July 
1945, which described the proceedings of the 1945 Communist Party, 
USA Convention* -He has furnished subsequent information and exhibits, 
however, which do, indicate that the Communist Party in Western 
Pennsylvania was to concentrate in "basic industries—steel, electrical 
and coal* 

39. S e testimony: Page 112, Paragraph 1. 

"Mr* OTITIC. In August 1948 the district office of the Communist 
Party of Western Pennsylvania, through its organizer ROT HDDSOH, 
called a meeting of the District Committee of the Communist Party. 
This meeting, which I attended as a leading functionary of the 
Communist Party in Western Pennsylvania, was held in the lecture 
room of the Horth Side Carnegie Library. It was attended by 
approximately 110 members of the Communist Party who were either 
elected members of the District Committee or leading Party func- 
tionaries. Functionaries could he members of the Nationality 
Commission, members of the ^teel Commission, or any one of the 
Commissions that functioned." 

By report dated July 11, 1948, CVETIC advised the above was a 
District Convention of the Communist Party of Western Pennsylvania 
held on the evening of July 9, 1948 and on July 10, 11, 1948, at 
the Carnegie Music Hall, North Side, Pittsburgh, Pa. CVETIC reported 
that there were 106 official delegates and 29 visitors attending the 
three-day sessions. 

30. Ee testimony: Page 114, last paragraph, Page 115, first paragraph. 

OTITIC stated: "...At this meeting JIM DOLSEET, who is the %ily 
Worker representative and correspondent "in Western Pennsylvania, 
stated to me — and he stated it to me personally; he is one of the 
leaders of the Communist Party in Western Pennsylvania and a 'long- 
time member: ! I don't see how we can have a successful revolution 
in this country without getting control of the basic industries. ,H 

In his report of July 11, 1948, CVETIC described this incident as follows: 

"In discussion, JIM 1 DOLSM said he can* t see how the monopolies can be 
taken over without a revolution." This was reported at Paragraph 1, 
Page 39, of the report of SA J. EBWABD MAD7AY, £ittsTiurgh, 4/13/49,

It stands to reason that we must get control of the basic industries

By report dated July' 18, 1949, CVE2IC set out that while in New York 
attending, the Bill of Sights Conference held on July 16, .17, 1949, he 
had had dinner with GEORGE WUCHBttCH, MILO:il£MUIA, and HTMAN SCHLES3BFGER. 
During the dinner, SCHLESSIHGER was reported by CYETIC to have stated, 
!|3?he revolution, when it comes, will start in Pittsburgh or Detroit— 
not in, New York, despite the fact that we have a large Communist Party 
here., These retail store strikes here in New York are not important 
and will not decide anything. Pittsburgh and Detroit have the basic 
industries. We must get control of these basic industries. Mining 
and steel are important and coal is the most important. We will 
have to get a strong Communist Party in basic industries before 
we can organize the revolution here in this country. n 

32. Re testimony: Page 121, Paragraphs S-3. 

"Mr, WALTER* What kind of work does GEORGE WUCHINICH do? 

"Mr. CYETIC. He is head of Dobrovolni Odbor in New York City." 

CTOTIC reported on December 13, .1949 that GEORGE WUCHINICH expected 
to go to work for Dobrovolni Odbor about January 1, 1950. 

On January 16, 1950 CVETIG reported WUCHINICH was residing in Hew 
York City. 

33. Re testimony: Page 129, Paragraphs 6-7. 

CVETIC stated: "...The Communist Party in Western- Pennsylvania has a 
Communist cell working in the major hotels in Pittsburgh, and this 
cell is also responsible for Communist Party infiltration in the 
Heinz plant located in North Side Pittsburgh. 

"I have knowledge of this, since I was a member of the North Side 
Section Committee, and the Hotel and Restaurant Workers 1 cell of 
the Communist Party is also a part of the North Side section, and 
I attended many meetings with the organisers from this cell."

six months, JOE MA-MDf has "been the key organizer for the Communist 
Party activities in this cell, and has "been instrumental in carrying 
out most of the agitation work now heing conducted at the Heinz 
Plant and in the hotels, in Pittsburgh. " 

It is noted that CVETIC and PI-26 have reported that EDDIE LAITEE 
and HAMP GOLDM are members of the Uorth Side Club, not the Pood 
Club or the Hotel and. Restaurant Workers cell. No reports sub- 
mitted "by CVETIC or any other informant have "been located which 
set out that JOE M/LHKDT carries on agitational work at the Heinz

"Mr. CVETIC, The meeting which I attended at the Port Pitt Hotel 
was .attended hy approximately forty youths. I would place the 
approximate membership at not more than sixty." 

CYETIC's reports of June 17 and 18, 1949 re the founding conference 
of the Lahor Youth League held at the Port Pitt Hotel, Pittsburgh, on 
June 17, 1949, set out that said conference was attended hy approxi-

From time to time, OTITIC has submitted incomplete information re- 
garding such a "breakdown, and it is noted that his testimony in 
this instance is incomplete and confused. Ho reports have been 
located in which OYEDIC has attempted to set down a specific 
sectional "breakdown in Western Pennsylvania. 

PI-26 and the Daily Worker of February 12, 1950, Page 9, Columns 
2-3, reported that at the present time there are nine sections 
(Hill, North Side, Bast Pittsburgh, Monongahela, Allegheny Valley, 
Washington County, Cambria County, 28th Congressional district 
and Beaver County) included in the Communist Party of Western 
Pennsylvania. 

37. Re testimony: Page 138, Paragraphs 4-5. 

"Mr. ^TJflnifiB. Can you give the committee the approximate total 
membership of these sections that you. have just enumerated? 

"Mr. C7E3?IC # The only 'section that I can give you a figure for 
is the North Side Section, of vflaich I am a member, and this section 
had 90 members. I think we are going to lose a few members; 
perhaps one that I know of. u 

On November 23, 1948, C7EDIC reported the North Side Section mem- 
bership as 99. JSTo reports have been located in, which he stated 
the North Side Section had 90 members. 

On "February 5, 1950, an anonymous source advised that as of 
January 13, 1950 'the North Side Section had 53 registered members. 

38. Re testimony: Page 141, Paragraph 2. 

CVETIC stated: V* -After STEVE NELSON was assigned to Western 
Pennsylvania as its district organiser in August of 1948, up until 
November 1949 when he became incapacitated due to a broken leg 
which he suffered while he was out hunting, I met regularly with 
STE7E NELSON to discuss policy for the American Slav Congress and 
other front organizations in which I was active and which I have 
.identified before." 

* As set out in CVEQ?IC*s report of July 11, 1948, SIEOl NELSON was 
elected as District Chaixman of the Communist Party of Western

of Electrical Workers in East Pittsburgh. 

It was his first public appearance since he returned from 
Washington, D. C, where he "opened the lid" on Co: 
rust activities in Western Pennsylvania* 
The large crowd of Westing- 



house Electric Corp. worker^ 
jammed the East Pittsbuigf 
High School auditorium and 
overflowed into classrooms where 
public address systems were in- 
stalled. 

Cvetlc followed union leaders' 
talks in which members were 
informed of contract demands. 

After the more than 1200 per- 
sons in the auditorium quieted 
4lown, Cvetic said: 
• "Thank God for carrying me

Here now to see her boy. Matt 
whom tlie thought was lost" 



SEASON CRACK- 



NOT FOOLED- 



He took a crack at Steve Nel- 
son and other district Commu 
nists. He said: 

"I attended a meeting wfth 
Steve Nelson and laid tha plans 
for their victory tn the United 
Electrical Workers Union last 
September. 

"Yon know he's the fellow 
that called me a slacker. If he 
were here I would tell him 
that daring the war he was on 
the West Coast selling atomic 
bomb secret*.* 

He told the members that the 
Russian line of thought would 
have to be "tossed" out of the 
country. He added:

Ton know, I would be happy

than living in Soviet Bussla,"

He said that he was well up, 
on the Communist lli^e and "theyj 
never kidded" him. a little. He 
added: 

"The only Interest they had 
m the old Westin^houae Elec- 
tric union was to help oveiv 
throw the government. 

"Their intercut In you was 
dishonest. Why I even sat^ST"

He said the Communist Party's

Cvetic told a joke about Russian 
secret police activities in the 
Pittsburgh district. He said: 

•I was living In Hotel Wfl.' 
11am Fenn under the name of 
Bob Stanton* I met many 
times with secret Russian po- 
lice In the same hotel. 

"They would always lock the 
room, look under the bed and 
around all furniture. I asked 
them once why they did that 
They told me: * 

'The FBI might be hiding 
here/ 

"I should have told them one 
was standing rift-ht In front of 
them. You know, I almost did 
that to see what they would 
do." 

[SCRIPT READY 

Cvetic had a prepared script, 
and he refused to deviate from it. 
He said he was unable to name 
names until after he had finished 
with the Congressional commit- 
tee. 

In closing, Cvetic said the Com- 
munist Party "tricked" the Amer- 
ican public into helping finance 
its local activities. Ht cited one

money to help them fight their 
battles. 

"Don't beHeve that They 
talked a good game. The 
money waa never used to help 
anyone except the Communist 
Party Itself." 

He said to beware of the Com- 
munist line, adding:

Rebulet li/V/SOj which enclosed a photostatic copy of an artidfesfeys* — w * 
columnist PETER EDSOB which appeared in the "Washington News" of ferchfSSp fed? ^_ 
1950, and set forth circumstances surrounding an alleged German or Naz 
who was operating a radio transmitter J in the hotel where CVETIC lived* 

It is to be noted that no report submitted by CVETIC can be located 
which would confirm the above article* Likewise, no information regarding the 
apprehension by the Pittsburgh Office o f a flazi agent who operated a r adio, 
transmitter from a local hotel can be located in the rites burgh fIXesTand two 
Special Agents who were assigned to this office during the entire period of 
World War II do not recall any such incident • It would appear, therefore, that 
the above article has no basis in fact* ^ — — xc^mmefm ^ — ^ir m 

In this connection, and of possible interest to the Bureau, there 
are enclosed two photostatic copies of an article entitled, "Hero's Welcome 
Given Cvetio at Union Rally", which appeared on page two, columns four and 
five of the "Pittsburgh Sun-rTele graph" on March 20, 1950. The Bureau* s 
attention is directed to paragraphs twenty-two - twenty-six of said article 

Lin which CVETIC is quoted as having s^id he„_had met many times with secr et 
Russian police at the ^ William Penn Hotel* It is noted that CVETIC furnished 
ffiToHlffESSrTegar^^ held at Room 508 of Hotel 

Lincoln, New York City, on June 21, 19^7* CYETIC advised that during the 
course of said meeting TOM BABIN and STEVE NELSON checked the telephone and i 
wiring in Room 308 in an attempt to determine whether same were tapped* f\Jr^ 

In another report dated September 26, 19U8, CVETIC set forth infor- 
mation concerning the Fourth American Slav Congress held at Chicago, Illinois, 
on September 2!^- 26, 191*6. CVETIC advised that on one occasion during the 
course of a caucus meeting in 'Room 509 of the Hotel Stevens in Chicago, CHARLES 
' MOSIL, Financial Secretary of i;he American Slav Congress, stated that everyone 
should be careful of whit they said because the FBI had all of the rooms tapped, 
CVETIC further advised that MUSIL apparently had no basis for this remark*

To summarize the testimony of Cvetic -which was given on 
February 21, 22, 23 and March 13, Ik, 2h s 1950, and e^j^dJJpiFsiiOli 
of the Communist Party of Western Pennsylvania •» F5gv'S3"if CoatlllCiSll f 

§C3 Tot Sofia! 

* ' Gvetic testified before the House Committee -on Un-American 
Activities six full days and provided details of his activities in the 
Communist Party and numerous front groups. Very few references were made 
by him to the Bureau and for the most part these consisted in his stating 
that he furnished certain reports to the Bureau and he therefore could not 
testify to great length as he no longer had that particular information. 
Cvetic indicated that he did not retain copies of his reports. He did, 
however, keep notes and from these notes in his possession and'iecSrd&Iof the Civil 
Rights Congress, the American Slav Congress and Progressive Party, as well 
as personal knowledge, testified before the House Committee on Un-American 
Activities. Cvetic furnished his personal background and described how 
he first became involved in Party activities. He testified that in April 
19i*l while, employed at the United States Employment Service he was approached 
by a "Government agency" and asked to volunteer his services to do undercover 
work. Cvetic said he najb;^ithv^ w their agent" two or three times and as a 
-result of those meetings, agreed to take steps which would put him in a position 
to join the Communist Party for the purpose of furnishing the FBI with 
reports on Communist Party activities. He then explained how he developed 
his friendship with a fellow employee in the Employment Service who was a 
member of the Communist Party. According to Cvetic, he was actually 
recruited in the Communist Party by Elizabeth Gurley Flynn and assigned lio 
a professional branch. Due to Cvetic *s Slovenian background he quickly 
rose in 'that field and became Secretary of the Slovene Commission of the 
Communist Party, USA. He described how he rose from minor positions of a 
local type to become a member of the District Committee of the Communist 
Party of Western Pennsylvania. In view of his background he eventually 
became a member of the Executive Board of the American Slav Congress and 
was a --member of the Nationality Conpission of the Communist Party,. USA.

Much of Cvetic ! s testimony -was concerned -with the organisational 
structure of the Communist Party in Western* Perinsylvania and at every 
opportunity he was requested to identify individuals as members of the 
Communist party if he knew such to be a fact, Cvetic testified that since * 
19^8 all lists and records were ordered destroyed for security reasons by 
the Party and he said his own. records he turned oyer to. the FBI, The 
Pittsburgh Office is being requested to verify this statement, When Cvetic 
testified to that fact, the Committee counsel asgfed him if he were paid by 
the FBI for his services in his undercover work, Cvetic replied, "Yes, I 
was a paid undercover agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation," The 
Committee counsel inquired of Cvetic as to whether Steve Nelson, District 
Organizer,, had ever discussed Russia's knowledge of atom secrets or the 
Communist Party 1 s successes in China, * Cvetic testified that Nelson told 
him, "We have the atom bomb now and the enemy won't be in such a God damn 
hurry to start airar." According to Cvetic when Nelson said the "enemy" 
he was referring to the United States Government, With regard to. China, 
Nelson allegedly told Cvetic, "We should take all the help in money, 
machinery and material from the enemy" and here again Cvetic said "eneny" 
fefers to the United States - "as this will hasten the day here," Cvetic 
said when Nelson referred to help he was talking about help for the new 
People's Government in China, The above statements, according to Cvetic, 
were made within the past year and he furnished them to the FBI, 

In his testimony, Cvetic was requested to tell the Committee the 
qf forts • of the Party to indoctrinate the rank and file with Communist 
philosophy and teachings and the manner in which such is done, Cvetic 
testified that most' of the theory of the Party is taught in classes and as 
the line changes the teachings are made to conform. He said that at.;the 
national convention in l$h& as a result of the "Duclos letter" the teachings 
of Browder who advocated a peaceful transmission to Socialism were thrown 
out and were replaced once more by the teachings of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and 
Engels, Cvetic then quoted from speakers at the national convention whose 
words were carried to district and branch meetings, "We must again become the 
party of the working class, the party of struggle. We must educate the 
workers to their correct role in this struggle and establish in the United 
States a dictatorship of the proletariat," Cvetic testified that the 
above quotation was taken from an official document and he turned over the 
document to the FBI. 



In addition to the above, Cvetic testified that he submitted to 
i the FBI copies, of the official -document of the Cominf orm which is called the 
organ of the Information Bureau of the Communist and Workers 1 Parties, "For 
a Lasting Peace, For a People's Democracy," With regard to this bulletin, 
Cvetic testified that, the American Communist receives his orders from" the 
Kremlin through the Cominf orm and cited as an example the Secretary of the 
French Communist Party, Duclos, who was instrumental in bringing about the 
Party line change in l$h$* 



t 



One complete session of Gvetic f s testimony was taken up -with his 
identification and elaboration of a group of documents obtained by the 
Committee by a subpoena from the Pittsburgh Police Department* The Police 
obtained them as the result of an accident in which a New York licensed 
automobile struck a safety pylon in Pittsburgh on February 2£, 1?!?0. The 
documents were found in the vehicle and related to the Labor Youth League 
of Western Pennsylvania • Before the Committee subpoenaed these documents 
they were made available to our Pittsburgh Division and photostats have been 
sent by Pittsburgh to our New York Office which is Office of origin in the 
case involving 4he Labor Youth League. Cvetic testified that the Labor 
Youth League has been developed by the Communist Party to recruit high 
school and college students and is a genuine Communist front organization. 
Among these documents was a breakdown of the membership of 'the League by 
states, financial status arid considerable^ data of interest. 

The remainder of Cvetic 1 s testimony was concerned with his identifica- 
tionaand explanation of a considerable number of documents brought by Cvetic 
under the subpoena which was served on him by the Committee. These records 
were, maintained at 9I4.3 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, to which Cvetic had access. 
The records related to the Civil Rights. Congress, £hd American Slav Congress 
and the Progressive Party. Cvetic testified that the District Secretary of 
the Party told .KBLlo Mamula, Secretary of the Civil Rights Congress, to remove 
the records' and Mamula told Cvetic to destroy them. Cvetic did not destroy 
them and brought them to the Committee. 

1 REFERENCES IN THE TESTIMONY TO OUR INFORMfeNTS 

In previous memoranda concerning Cvetic *s testimony^ it was 
pointed out that inadvertently he revealed the names of many other individuals 
acting at that time in a confidential capacity for the Pittsburgh Division. 
It will also be recalled that this matter was brought to the attention of 
the Department and a protest was made to the House Committee on Un-American 
Activities. In reviewing Cvetic factual testimony in the veiy early stages 
he described meetings held at 1^0 Wood Street, third floor, and when that 
building was torn down, meetings at 9^3 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh. In 
describing the premises at khO Wood Street, Cvetic stated that they were 
under the control of George Dietze and when the. building was torn down 
Dietze obtained new quarters at 9^3 Liberty Avenue. Dietze, of course, was 
our informant and the mention of his name caused Dietze to rush to his own 
defense and publicly state he v/ias also working for the 1?BI« . Of the other 
individuals mentioned none have come forward and revealed their Bureau 



connection. The names of these persons are set forth as f&Llows

ACTION 

Cvetic in his testimony inadvertently mentioned the names of a 
number of individuals serving in a confidential capacity for the Bureau and 
this matter has been the subject of previous memoranda* -He stated that he 
was an undercover agent of the FBI which, undoubtedly has given a wrong 
impression to people unfamiliar with the manner in which the Bureau operates. 
Cvetic should more properly .'have stated he v/as an informant. He also 
testified that he did not retain popies ofliis reports but merely had 
certain notes in his possession which he used to refresh his memoiy. Each 
time Cvetic stated he had furnished certain reports has been set out above 
and the Pittsburgh Office is being requested to check Cvetic 1 s reports to 
verify his testimony* For approval there is attached an appropriate letter 
to Pittsburgh, ' '

TEMMT OF COMMUNIST PARTI REGARDING M va ffVETIC, A SPY 



"The Communist Party of JSfe stern Pennsylvania issued the following 
statement regarding MAT^VETlC, the spy: 

n, Big manufacturers have launched a campaign against the miners' 
just demands, in which connection they are also trying to break up 
the Communist Party. For that reason they were able to buy a 
cheap spy in the person of MATT CVETIC who would help them attain 
their purposes. Their hand with CVETIC was forced because he knew 
the Communist Party was ready to unmask him as a Judas. CVETIC f s 
statements were really not against the Communist Party but for 
ex-Congressman MC DOWEEL whom the CP helped^ defeat in 1948* 
The reactionary politician Judge BLAIR YpKSmHER is using CVETIC 
for his own publicity purposes fearing that he will meet the same 
fate at the polls as MC DQWELL did. Friends of labor, and liberals 
in general, will ignore the hysterical appeal of MATT CVETIC. 
Besides, MATT CVETIC is a draft-dodger, having stayed at home 
while others went but to fight on the field of battle abroad. The 
name of CVETIC is 'the name of a spy, which is something repugnant 
to every American. We are sure the American people will 
the destruction of American democracy under the guise 
Communist hysteria. ! "'

ALWAYS SPIES AND ST0OIPIGE0NS IN LABOR MOVEMENT 



"I see the name of MAT3^SVETIC got into the headlines to the 
effect that he got into' the Communist Party with the understanding 
of the FBI. Well, such an incident is nothing new in the labor 
movement* There -were always low-down elements who slipped into the 
labor movement to spy on labor and the poor people* I also noted 
that CVETIC as a spy wormed his way into the American Slav Congress 
and the Wallace Progressive Party which he falsely accused of being 
under the domination of the Communist Party. The world will keep 
progressing and will not turn back for stoolpigeons and such-like 
people* The cause of progress is supported by all mankind, because 
that is' the only cause that has something nice to offer -mankind*

MATT CVETIC WAS SPY IN COMMUNIST PARTY 



»Th^Pi€tsburgh Press is going all out telling its readers how 
MAp^CVETIC, of Slovene descent, was a stoolpigeon of the FBI 
in the Communist Party. CVETIC last Saturday announced that he 
'voluntarily 1 revealed himself, the Communist Party leaders in 
Pittsburgh issued statements to the local papers claiming that 
CVETIC ran to the newspapers and the Congressional un-American 
Activities Committee when he saw that the CP leaders were 
catching up with him.. 

"The capitalists have for years been exploiting such types for 
their own purposes against labor. It is then no wonder that now 
when miners are. conducting a decisive struggle for their just 
demands and when the rest of labor for the most part is creating 
a solid frqnt with the miners, the economic royalists through 
banner headlines and scoops ,in the papers are using various 
CVETICS for the purpose of undoing the unity of American worker j 
in connection with the miners 1 struggle. 




4 



"CVETIC and his ilk as reptiles of the rich are used against 
labor unions and every movement in the interest of the people. 
Reaction wants to mislead the people so they would rack their 
brains about various 'CVETICS and so they would think less about 
their everyday needs. Through various CVETICS they'd like to scare 
the people with a red hunt while five million workers are without 
a job and the economic situation of the people is daily getting 
worse. They'd like to have the people occupy themselves with 
the story about some sort of danger and to forget real dangers 
concerning the economic crisis and the danger of w£*/04—37&+*&*

for the preservation of hardr-won gains of the American people ♦»

CVETIC THE SPY AND THE MINERS 







IL=si# 



"What type of black, anti-labor and anti-national forces are hiding 
behind CVETIC the spy wa-s confirmed in Washington last Thursday 
when before the Un-American Committee he stated that the 'Communists 
are trying to prolong the mine strike by giving the miners food 
and the Daily Worker to read f . As soon as CVETIC opened his mouth 
through the newspapers it was obvious that his bosses 1 purpose 
is to weaken labor, to impede progress of the ever-broadening 
front for peace and for aid to the striking miners from the public 
in general* The Big Trusts are using CVETIC to confuse the public * 
and thus to break- the strike, to thwart the just aspirations of 
labor • Let no one be fooled into believing that spies like 
CVETIC are planted in the Communist Party for the purpose of learn- 
ing something, to watch the Communists - because the Communist Party 
is an open book* Read its Daily Worker and you'll learn everything 
about the Communists. Guys like CVETIC are planted in the +$&&?? 
Communist Party for the purpose of weakening the mighty labor front. * 
That has been done elsewhere. Reactionaries don't want the Daily 
Worker or the Communists to help the miners* The Truman administra- 
tion should go after the Trusts instead of planting stoolpigeons 
and spies in the labor unions. It should put its paid spies to 
work within the Trusts and other anti-labor organizations."
